About Me

Illustrator. Always willing to do TRADE with those who strike my visual interest.
Only draw from my own photos, unless it's a commission. 
My availability from Dec. 1-16 is  almost anytime, Im on Vacation from teaching.

SKYPE* DRAWING SESSION takes about 1 hour, 6-8 quick sketches (5-7 min. each), then take a screen shot of each pose, which I will ONLY use later as reference to finish the drawing. Photos are never published. If we do nudes, you will have the option to put on your underwear for the photo. Nudity is NEVER REQUIRED, but it is preferred. In exchange, I will send you DIGITAL FILES of all finished drawings, which you may use however you like. To have a successful Skype/video chat session, model must have a good quality camera, adequate lighting and enough space to move around. Here is a link to samples of my Skype Drawings:
